CAGAYAN AGRI GRADUATES TO RECEIVE A HECTARE OF LAND EACH
GRADUATES of courses related to farming in the Province of Cagayan will each be given a hectare of agricultural land.
The granting of land is in accordance with Executive Order No. 75 signed by President Duterte, which provides that lands owned by the government and are no longer utilized will be distributed to beneficiaries such as agriculture graduates and retired police and military personnel.
The Department of Agrarian Reform has identified 549 hectares within the Cagayan State University campus in Lal-lo and 73 hectares in Piat.
Provincial Agrarian Reform Office Nida Agustin said due to limited hectares of land, agriculture graduates will be prioritized.
“Dahil po doon sa limited na lupa na ipamimigay namin nai-limit muna natin ‘yung award dito sa mga agriculture graduates,” Agustin said.
Currently, there are 45 applicants for the program but the screening has been tightened.
Cagayan is one of the three provinces that initially implemented the EO for agricultural support to the country’s food sufficiency.
